MSI has revealed a new curved gaming monitor named Optix MAG301CR2. This is a 30-inch frameless design monitor with a 1500R curvature and support for MSI's Mystic Light RGB tech.
The MSI Optix MAG301CR2 features a 30-inch curved VA panel with 200Hz refresh rate, 1ms MPRT, and a WFHD resolution (2560×1080). Featuring Adaptive Sync (FreeSync Premium), this monitor “provide gamers with a captivating, tear-free gaming experience”. Other interesting gaming-oriented features include Night Vision, a smart black tuner that increases visibility in darker areas, and multiple gaming modes for your favourite games.
With 300nits of brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, this 10bit panel (8bit+FRC) can cover up to 82% of the DCI-P3 wide colour gamut and 102% of the sRGB colour spectrum. This monitor is described as HDR Ready, but given the 300nits of brightness, HDR content might seem less vivid than on more capable displays. For added convenience, users can customise the monitor's settings through the Gaming OSD app.
The back of the monitor features an RGB Mystic Light halo, allowing users to synchronise with other Mystic Light compatible products. Also on the back of the monitor, there are 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, a USB-C port (DP alt. mode), an 3.5mm audio-out jack, a USB-B 3.2 Gen1 port, and 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen1 ports. Besides the VESA 75x75mm support, the included stand offers great ergonomics including tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment.
MSI is yet to reveal the pricing and availability of the Optix MAG301CR2. You can learn more about this monitor HERE.
